We are not playing any role”, at the conclusion of its three-day National Executive Council meeting at Kelambakkam on the the outskirts of the city.
The Summary of Bhaiyyaji Press Meet:
In the just concluded National Council Meet, review of work, discussions on current situation and plan for the next year were discussed. RSS is running different types of activities in 52,000 places in the country and out of which about 40,000 are daily meetings and 12,000 are weekly/monthly meetings. As always we continue our efforts on increasing the work, this year in comparison to last year the daily meetings have increased by 3000. Also in the daily meetings (of about 40,000) 75% of those who attend are below 45 age and out of that about 20,000 are below 25. We have concentrated on college students. In 11,000 colleges there are about 1000 plus activities for the students. Another area of focus is IT Professionals. As you all are aware there are IT hubs in places like Pune, Bangalore and Noida. In about 500 places IT professionals come together once in a week or even daily. As you would be aware Sangh Swayamsewaks involve in many service projects especially in Slums, Urban, tribal areas and remote villages. Over 1,50,000 service activities are being conducted by RSS.
In the last 2 to 3 years there has been focus on rural development. 250 villages in 15 states have been adopted for carrying out programmes to improve health, agriculture, self reliance and social harmony. We are sure in near future we will see good results.In the same way the program on Cow protection was taken up and a movement on cow protection launched by saints called the Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra in which RSS volunteers also participated has yielded good results.
